Amy Schumer’s Morning Routine Will Make You Feel Better About Skipping Deodorant

by Adam Silvers

One of the many reasons Amy Schumer is so damn likable is because she's so damn relatable.

A few weeks ago, the 35-year-old comedian, actress, writer and producer had us cracking up after she told a story about how her boyfriend, Ben Hanisch, yawned while she was giving him a blowjob.

Schumer said,

I went down on Ben this morning and he yawned. It was an accident, but we were both just dying laughing. I'm happy, but obviously I was like, 'Fuck you!'

Now, Amy Schumer is at it again, and she's revealing much, much more.

The 35-year-old is on the cover of InStyle's Beauty issue, and in speaking with the magazine, Schumer touched on a variety of topics, including her zero-fucks-given morning routine and her upbringing.

Speaking about her easy morning routine, Schumer said,

My regimen is I wake up, usually around 8:30, brush my teeth and splash water on my face. Then I put Kiehl's eye-something under my eyes, and I blot La Mer so it looks like sunblock. Then I put on deodorant if I remember, which today I did not. I use Secret. I tried the natural ones, but my body was just like, 'Stop all that. Just die early and don't smell like a foot.'

Pretty hard to argue with that logic, no?

The millennial icon also revealed what she likes to do to stay fit. She said,

For exercise, I'll text Rachel Feinstein and ask her if she wants to go to a Soul­Cycle class. We ride very slowly in the back, but they don't make us feel bad about that. Afterward, we celebrate the workout with a very long lunch and coffee. We're like elderly women on the Upper West Side. And I love to go for a long walk, maybe around the Central Park reservoir.

Jessica Seinfeld, who conducted the interview, asked Schumer if she's worried about "aging in front of the camera," to which she replied, somewhat in jest,

Not yet. What's good about not being a model is that it's not the thing I trade on. Once I start looking older, that won't affect me. I have never gotten anything done because I'm, like, so gorgeous. I'm good-looking enough that I can work in the business. I get enough attention from men that I feel good. I see pictures of myself now, and I look younger than I think of myself. It hasn't scared me yet. I'm pretty sure I'll never get any sort of surgery, but no proclamations. Also, I cannot imagine a moment when I will need filler for my face, as if it needs to be filled. Can we unfill this? Let's get an emptier. Yeah, I need lipo on my cheeks.

Amy Schumer also talked about the important role her mom and dad played in shaping the woman she is today. The 35-year-old said,

My parents made me think I was a genius supermodel, and it was kind of too late when I found out that they had been lying. But I was always really confident, though there have been bumps in the road. During freshman year of college the girls at the school were just so much hotter than me. I couldn't compete, and I lost all my self-esteem. I was confused about where my value lay, and then I figured it out.

Additionally, Schumer spoke about being comfortable with her body, especially in comparison to other Hollywood stars.

She said,

I'm also realistic because if I look my absolute best and go to an awards thing, I'm still going to be seated next to Blake Lively or Emily Ratajkowski. So that can break your heart or you can be like, 'This is pretty good. I'll take this level.'

Keep doing you, Amy!
